Officials of the Meteorological Service have predicted a good rainy season for this year.

A Meteorologist at the Kotoka International Airport Michael Padi says developments over the Indian Ocean which is the country's source of rainfall reflects a positive rainy season in the coming months.

He was however quick to add that the southern sector of the country will be out of the rainy season earlier than normal because the rain belt will be moving upwards toward the northern sector of the country.

On concerns about a recent UN draft document on worsening weather conditions globally he said at least Ghana can expect rain in every three days and suggested that for farmers to benefit immensely from the coming rains, they should practice irrigation systems to reserve some of the water.

He also added that not much improvement can be expected on the level of water in the Akosombo Dam to turn around the country's energy generating problems.
